Double die errors are a numismatic rarity, and the bicentennial quarter is no exception. The 1776-1976 double die obverse features a distinct doubling of the design elements, adding an extra layer of uniqueness to the  coin.

Even rarer than the double die variety is the triple die obverse bicentennial quarter. This error  coin exhibits three distinct impressions of the design elements, making it a true anomaly in the world of numismatics.
